5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST have for everyone with kids!! My girls A D O R E D it!, 7 Jan. 2010
By 
This review is from: The Story of Christmas (Hardcover)
I bought this Advent Calendar to introduce the story of Christmas to my 2 and 4 years old girls and I couldn't immagine how much they would have loved it. It was more succesful than the littlest pet shop and playmobil advent calendars! My girls were thrilled by the little booklets and they didn't want to read anything else before going to bed. Every day they wanted to know which one we would have taken out in the evening and before reading it they would spend a good 15 minutes peering through the pages and looking to the illustrations. Then they would listen carefully to the story and every day they would have many questions about it. Then of course they would fight in pure Christmas spirit to hang it on the tree! During the day they would go back to the old ones to look at the illustrations and to remember how the story goes.. When we put it away with all the decorations I was told "I can't wait for next year to read it again!!". PS we're not a religious family either!!!! The Calendar Itself open up and it's freestanding but can also be put up the wall. The books are very small (4 cartonate pages each) and comes in different shapes that when they're all in the Calendar they create some kind of Nativity Scene. You take them out one by one and they have a golden string to hang it on the tree... i think next year I'll take them all out to hang them on the tree and I'll have the girls to fetch the right "number" every evening to read it and then place it on the Scene.. so the 24th the Nativity Scene will be complete and I won't have to tide up all the books when I take down the Christmas decorations! The booklets are sweetly and simply illustrated in a way that (I assume) would appeal children. Also the stories are simply told with small phrases. All over all a captivating story that we all enjoied reading and gave a less commercial face to our Christmas. As far as I'm concerned It's a must have for anyone who's got kids and don't want Christmas to be only the "Santa-&-Presents" businnes! Highly recommanded!!
